Before the court was Matthew Cox, 31, of Wollaston Close, Bury, who admitted common assault. He was given a community order with two years’ supervision by the probation service and ordered to attend a building better relationships course and an alcohol treatment programme.

He was also ordered to pay £135 costs and a £60 victim surcharge.
